The University of Vermont Alumni House was built in 1892 and is 18,000 square feet. Recently a 2,600 square foot addition was put on and we were hired to do the landscaping. Around the addition we installed bluestone mortared patios and stair treads as well as granite steps. We also did a brick paver patio and walkway with alumni names etched into the bricks. Around both the new addition and the original building we installed tree, shrub and perennial plantings. Despite the age of the architecture, this recently renovated building is now looking as lively and welcoming as ever.
Work at Champlain College is almost complete! We put in English Edge Heavy clay pavers from Pine Hall where giant concrete slabs used to be and installed some plantings. The colors of the pavers are Buff and Rose which compliment the surrounding plants and buildings. With the new CCM building looking great it was time to update some other areas of campus.
I am super excited about this work we're doing at Champlain College! We broke ground and are putting in English Edge Heavy clay pavers from Pine Hall where giant concrete slabs used to be. The colors of the pavers are Buff and Rose which compliment the surrounding plants and buildings. With the new CCM building looking fabulous it was time to update some other areas of campus. We are also doing some plantings including the transplanted tree in the picture below.
The UVM Englesby house in Burlington is a location we have done work at over the past few years. Recently it needed a bit of a face lift to really bring it back to life and let our previous work shine. It isn’t common to find such a large and beautiful formal garden in the middle of the city which adds to the location's overall charm. The use of brick in the front walkway and backyard patio ties in nicely with the home. With the addition of some plantings the location is as vibrant and lively as ever.
Our customers restored this period house, barn, and cottage to all its glory. They wanted the stone work to look period as well. The walks and patios where done with a weathered, rustic clay paver which looks like it may have been down for 100 years. The stone steps were all custom cut Woodbury granite, with thermaled tops and rocked faces on three sides. The foundation of the main house was done in a rustic granite ledgestone veneer to give it that old world look....Check back soon to see the finished project, we are still working on a couple of major pieces to this home.
Landshapes invested in a Mechanical Paver Layer. This piece of equipment, (engineered and manufactured in Germany) makes laying large expanses of Pavers a breeze. Whether they are Permeable Pavers or Traditional Pavers this machine sets 100's of square feet of pavers an hour. If you need large expanses of Permeable Pavers or Traditional Pavers laid give us a call for a detailed estimate.
